Erika Boeing, systems engineer, entrepreneur, CEO, and co-founder of Accelerate Wind shares her mission of having “as many wind turbines on as many commercial rooftops as possible that are economically viable through the development of several inventions currently in progress.” Current wind turbines tend to be noisy, unsightly and expensive. Rooftop wind also struggles to repay the initial start-up investment, as rooftop wind speeds are too low to extract substantial power.
Erika states Accelerate Wind solves these issues by incorporating the turbines into the architectural design of a new building or a retrofit project by placing them at the edges of the roof where wind is naturally forced to speed up as it travels around the perimeters. The result is a wind energy solution that operates noiselessly, is less expensive, and is more aesthetically pleasing than many of today’s solutions.
